In addition to the main exhibits at the Flower Show, there will also be special events hosted throughout the Philadelphia Flower Show. From the Flower Show Preview Party being held on the Friday prior to the start of the regular Flower Show viewing to the Girls Night Out event on March 7, these events are sure to be spectacular happenings as well. For those who follow Bravo TV’s “The Real Housewives of New York City”, Ramona Singer will be on hand on Saturday, March 9, from 2-4 p.m. to introduce her Ramona Red Sangiovese Merlot from Tuscany to the Pennsylvania crowds at the Philadelphia Flower Show. These are just a few of the many special events which will be taking place throughout the Flower Show. Some events require an additional fee while others are included in the general admission ticket price.

Best of all, the proceeds received from the Philadelphia Flower Show go to benefit the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) and the programs supported by the PHS including City Harvest, which helps to feed families in the Philadelphia area and provide gardening and nutrition education. Founded in 1827, the PHS is a nonprofit organization which offers horticultural programs, workshops, activities, information and more to those who share a love for horticulture and its many wonderful aspects.
